9781537795102: Snooks The Presidents' Man: 1864 - 1865 (Snooks in the Civil War) (Volume 2)

Having survived many harrowing battles, including Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, Snooks (probably Charles F. Thursby) is befriended by John Surratt and his mother, Mary. He is only 12 miles from Washington D.C. and the British legation that will finally send him home. But someone in high office has a very different fate in store for Snooks. His story introduces many famous and not so famous figures of the American Civil War. The events described are real - although at times Snooks can be a bit weak on detail. From the stage of Ford's Theatre to Southern prisons, the strong and the mighty seem bound and determined to frustrate his efforts to get home. Perhaps it had something to do with his masquerade as a former school chum, Flashman. Seduction and betrayal are the least of Snooks' problems as he tries unwillingly to complete a mission in which he doesn't believe for a man he thinks is a worse villain than himself. He is a witness to history and to tragic events, for many of which he is partly to blame. Extensively footnoted, volume 2 of Snooks' Civil War adventures along with its companion (Snooks North and South) completes the cycle and answers the questions as to why a chap named Flashman never wrote his own memoir of the War. It's fiction that happens to be very close to the truth.

About the Author:

Peter Brian is the pseudonym for two friends with a combined 100+years of studying the Civil War. Ardent fans of the Flashman books by George MacDonald Fraser, they deeply regret the lack of one particular volume in that series. They believe that missing episode is explained and completed in their 2-volume history of Snooks. Formerly employed in the medical equipment, insurance and pharmaceutical industries, the two enjoy good wine, good music and travel. They have filled the hours in various pursuits—writing, teaching tennis and doing volunteer work in South Africa. Married to two girls from Twinsburg OH who were best friends since birth, Peter and Brian count their blessings every day.
